Sides can make or break a meal and when you're making a quick meal, fries often become the default from someone like Ore-Ida. I've never been one to try frozen mashed potatoes but in the past I have tried and tossed out the refrigerated ones because they didn't taste right. So when I saw these guys, I thought that they might have potential to be a different kind of snack/ side dish for sloppy joes or cheese steaks.

I chose to get the original butter flavor to eat with our meal. The directions are simple, toss on a baking sheet in the oven for the appointed time, flip in the middle and voila. The bites were smaller than I thought. I honestly expected something larger, more akin to the smiles that Ore Ida makes. These were more like the size of a dime. As they cooked they got crispy but just didn't look appealing at all.

The taste wasn't there for me either. I think the fake butter flavor disturbed it the most, but along with the size being so small, I didn't get the fluffiness that normally comes with mashed potatoes and was pretty disappointed with the flavor and texture. Ore-Ida normally comes through with products but these were a huge disappointment.
